You can follow the solutions that other experts offered to you like using a Cd to recovery the corrupted windows file that's why you dont have that option and also do a system restore to the point where everything is working fine..By the I also encounter this and it was cause by a virus or a trojan that only 3 option are available and the option to change display settings is disable, so try running your updated anti virus or if you also have a spyware that will also help...IF all failed this will end to reinstalling your operating system...

Good luck..........

The driver of your video card hasn't been installed. What you have is just a windows pre-loaded driver. Go to Device manager (right-click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager). Look for Display Adapter, Click the + sign. Right-click on your display adapter and click on update driver. Let it search the net for updated drivers.
Also you can run the Setup CD for the motherboard of your computer if you still have it. Install the Video card driver.

The background setting are embedded in the operating system, so you will need to perform a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc in order to get it back. You may be able to do a system restore to get it to work. Start with the restore, then do the repair.

    The server glitch momentarily. Did you get my solution?

    I believe that a system restore from the start menu, acessories/system tools, will fix the problem. You may have to go back a couple of restore points, but this should clear it up.

    Try the restore, then get back to me.

    You will need your recovery or operating system disc. Upon start up, you will need to enter the boot menu or set the bios to boot from the CD drive before the hard drive. Boot from the disc, follow the directions, skip past the first repair section that asks if you want to repair using the recovery console, and go on to the section that finds existing operating systems, from here you will be able to press R, and perform the repair.
